One of the “Flying Sergeants” dons his oxygen apparatus for high altitude flying. Immediately over his heavy flying suit is his “Mae West” life preserver, which is easily inflated. The airman was photographed by Russell Lee in May 1942 at Lake Muroc, California. Life preservers were commonly nicknamed “Mae West” because, once inflated, it appeared as physically endowed as actress Mae West.

She also shot dead two of her own who raped a local woman and warned the rest the same awaited them if anyone else touched a single girl or woman in the village or anywhere else.
